I read 13 books  in December.


The books I read were:

  •  I didn’t finish any audiobooks
  • Set in the U.S., England, and India

What was my favorite?

This whole series was good.  All of the women are involved in something scandalous.

From My Shelf

I’m adding a section to encourage me to read books that I’ve had sitting around for a long time.

This just came out so it hasn’t been sitting around for a long time.  But, I preordered it and it came and I didn’t pick it up immediately.  That tends to be the kiss of death and means I never get around to reading it.  So I made sure to read this one this month.  

My goal book for this was Pachinko.  I tried. I really did. I’m probably about 90% done but it is a slog.
